Don't forget the fish from Shohei Imamura's "The Pornographers". :D
Every year that passes since I first saw this, the more frequently my mind drifts back towards it. This is a very special movie.
The moment that the whole film hinges upon is absurdly effective. Not nearly as slow going as people make it out to be. If you have traveled or are interested in traveling, it'll have no problem keeping your attention throughout.
Oh my. The last 10 minutes of this movie were perfect.
I liked this. Though, I still can't decide weather it's a slightly trite Tsai knock-off, or an interesting divergence in a sort of mini cinema movement.
Perhaps the best performance from a fish that you will ever see.
I just began reading "Jealousy" after putting it off for quite some time. I am now kicking myself for waiting. He's truly one of the most creative and intelligent artists I've come across in a long time.
I suspect Terrence Malick was taking extremely thorough notes when he watched this. The opening is one of the most fascinating sequences I've ever seen.
I truly believe that in 100 years this will be hailed as THE masterpiece of the 21st century. Even if that doesn't happen, I'll know the truth.
I really felt like I should like this, and I did...in a way. I liked its mysterious nature and the very sterile mood, but overall there's not much of value here. It's an interesting work aesthetically, nothing more.
Varda, more so than any other filmmaker I know, understands cinema as a time-based medium. She's in many ways a painter, and here uses empty time the way a painter would use negative space. This is one of the most masterful displays of pure directing prowess I've ever seen, and is exhilarating to behold.
I expected a fun/funny albeit trashy film. I got an unpolished diamond. This is one of the most pleasant surprises I've come across in a long time.
Maya Deren's best film, in my opinion. Much better than even "Meshes."
This movie creeps under you skin in an unexpected way. Works both on an intellectual and visceral level. Almost impossible to speak eloquently about. A real mystery.
I think this is one Bergman's most powerful and most underrated films. The final shot is pure cinema, and I think one of the most potent images I've ever seen.
This film is perplexing on a first viewing. It only gets better with time, and subsequent viewings. See it while you're young to allow for maximum growth.
This was a movie. Nothing more, nothing less. You sit there. Some images and sounds play. There is a story. It ends. You go home, and everything is exactly the same.
Is it rape if I invite you to do so?
